    I especially like the careful attention paid to fit and finish.

    Nice but highly unsafe in an accident. In a side impact you get that mount impaled into your head.

    Nice, this is certainly a less expensive take on the previously-featured car seat camera mount. +1 for ingenuity, though I can’t say that I would prefer a piece of wood like that sitting at my neck :x

    I guess my S-VHS camera video is around here some where, haven’t seen it in years (1991). My community college had loaned me the tripod and camera for a video project when I set up for the drive home. Seems I just pulled out and adjusted the standard full sized tripod and belted it into the passenger side seat belt (lap and shoulder type). Memory serves that I extended the front tripod legs to the floor to aid in stability and opened the tripod. I then mounted the camera into the tripod’s camera mount. I might have used the center belt but the idea works just as well. Granted I was driving a 77 Nova but modern cars still have seat belts right? The audio will be terrible as I played Pink Floyd the Wall over the car stereo and was picked up by camera mic.

    Just a bit unsafe… for someone in the backseat ;-)

    Not a bad idea if you’re in a pinch. lol do not slam the brakes if someone’s in the back seat.
